This workshop will feature the itoigawa shimpaku juniper (Juniperus chinensis Itoigawa). The itoigawa variety is a vase-shaped, slow-growing cultivar that is known for twisting movement and brighter, thinner foliage than the standard shimpaku. These trees are in 1-gallon pots. The primary focus of this workshop will be what to look for in creating bonsai; design and wiring will be covered. The goal of this class is to come away with a tree that has its first initial styling and is on its way to becoming a bonsai.
This program meets in person at the Arboretum.
